In many ways, Carrie Parker is like any other eight-year-old: playing make-believe, dreading school, dreaming of faraway places. But even her imaginative mind can't shut out the realities of her impoverished North Carolina home or help her protect her younger sister, Emma.

By turns achingly naive and utterly pragmatic, Carrie has been shaped by the loss of her beloved daddy and by a drunken stepfather and her emotionally absent mother. Charting an astonishing course of survival for herself and Emma, she hopes to transform their lives into one more closely resembling the storybooks she treasures.

But after the sisters' plan to run away from home unravels, their world takes a shocking turn, and one shattering moment ultimately reveals a truth that leaves everyone reeling.

Narrated with the simplicity and unabashed honesty of a child's perspective, Me & Emma is a vivid portrayal of heartbreaking loss of innocence, an indomitable spirit, and incredible courage, a story that will resonate with readers long after they've heard the final sentence.

Listener Opinions

    " Excellent story about how two sister cope with the loss of their father, being dirt poor, and having a horrible step father who is abusive. There is a terrific twist at the end that you don't expect. It is a wonderful read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellie Boyd | 2/11/2014

    " This book was another that makes me so grateful for my life, my trials and how I grew up. The poor girls are treated so awful, some things I can't even believe. From the viewpoint of a young girl growing up with abusive step-father and how she copes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz Gibbs | 2/6/2014

    " I'm still reeling from the ending on this one. I went through the whole book expecting a typical child psychology ending- a happy ending I guess...where the abused children are finally rescued from their horrific circumstances... I almost feel chills as I remember reading that last chapter. Carrie and Emma are such sweethearts. I enjoyed seeing the way they looked at the world, especially as children in circumstances they didn't know could be any different. Read 2009 [appx. 6/30/09] "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/29/2014

    " I read this in a day. The story weighs your heart down. I also never saw the ending coming. Definitely worth a read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi Dow | 1/28/2014

    " I thought it was good.. the ending was a surprise which I like. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bonnie | 1/20/2014

    " Great book if you can handle the horrors of this child's life. Once you get to the end, you want to go back and read parts where you may have missed something. Nice twist (in a storytelling, not real life, way). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 1/10/2014

    " Definitely a good book, especially for those who work with children. I liked it, unique. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Autumn | 1/9/2014

    " Didn't love it. Didn't hate it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 12/4/2013

    " Haunting!!!!! You will not be able to put this book down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri | 11/25/2013

    " I was rather disappointed by this book. I thought the plot "twist" was pretty easy to figure out right from the beginning. Story is okay, would have been better without the twist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophie | 11/3/2013

    " A good but not groundbreaking read. I saw the twist coming before I was even halfway through the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abbie | 11/2/2013

    " Although it's a tough topic to read about (physical/sexual abuse) of a child, the plot kept you reading to see how it concludes. Part of the ending was easy to figure out but the twist at the end was quite a surprise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry Schindler | 11/1/2013

    " this story is told so well from the perspective of a child. although some of the subject matter is tough to read, I enjoyed the red and was taken aback by the ending. it's one of those books I'd like to read again to see if i missed anything hinting at the ending! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia Haymaker | 9/12/2013

    " Wow. Wow. Wow. Great book! I knew there was going to be a dramatic ending but it was at the very end and it kept me guessing and wondering. The last handful of pages were definite page turners! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon Tzur | 8/20/2013

    " Great book though sometimes painful to read. Must be read twice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda Lang | 6/17/2013

    " Definitely a slow read and not an engaging one at that. The ending was a surprise but I'm not sure it worked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 12/16/2012

    " Loved it! One of the very few times that I have read a book where the narrator is a young eight year old girl. Thrilled and surprised with the ending and what is revealed... "

    " I love reading first-person perspectives, especially from an unusual voice, which is what I enjoyed most about this book. It was, however, so so sad all the way through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 4/25/2011

    " Threw me for a loop! Easy writing style mixed with a cringe worthy story that makes you feel for the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 4/17/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 3/14/2011
